Board Game: The Fog of War
Waro (Euro-ized wargame)

Took me a while to get my head wrapped around this game. Wanted to see it as a wargame but it’s really a bluffing game.

Terraforming Mars is one of the more popular games in the RockyMountainNavy house and often lands on the table for Family Game Night. New map is not a needed expansion but very welcome.

Board Game: Panzer: Game Expansion Set, Nr 3 – Drive to the Rhine: The Second Front 1944-45
Wargame

My first wargame was James M. Day’s Panzer: A Tactical Game of Armored Combat on the Eastern Front, 1941-1945 in 1979 from Yaquinto. Now years later I love the latest Panzer: The Game of Small Unit Actions and Combined Arms Operations on the Eastern Front 1943-45 from GMT Games. Gotta have all the expansions!

Board Game: Battle Hymn Vol. 1: Gettysburg and Pea Ridge
Wargame

I don’t have many America Civil War games but am very glad I got this one. The chit-pull activation mechanic introduces a neat fog-of-war element.

12. Board Game: Survive: Escape from Atlantis! [Average Rating:7.31 Overall Rank:287]
Board Game: Survive: Escape from Atlantis!
Family Game

Can be a bit mean but sometime we all need a “take that” game. The RockyMountainNavy Boys introduced this to several nonboardgaming neighbors who loved it!

Like Panzer: The Game of Small Unit Actions and Combined Arms Operations on the Eastern Front 1943-45, the MBT (Second Edition) series is a favorite. Another great expansion.

Board Game: Supply Lines of the American Revolution: The Southern Strategy
Waro (Euro-ized wargame)

Takes the original Supply Lines of the American Revolution: The Northern Theater, 1775-1777 and changes it for the Southern Campaign. Love the rules for irregulars.

17. Board Game: Enemies of Rome [Average Rating:6.67 Overall Rank:11012]
Board Game: Enemies of Rome
Waro (Euro-ized wargame)

Maybe the most popular of the lite-wargames in my collection. Can even get the non gamer oldest to play because of the theme.

Board Game: Mrs Thatcher's War: The Falklands, 1982

I was in high school when the Falklands War happpened and as a wargame studied it intensely. There are actually very few games on the subject. This is a good one!

23. Board Game: Cataclysm: A Second World War [Average Rating:7.66 Overall Rank:2439]
Board Game: Cataclysm: A Second World War
BGG categorizes this as a wargame. I say Strategy Game.

Another game I had problems wrapping my head around until I started thinking of it as a political game and not a wargame. Now a favorite.
